You can use the list as your reference whenever you are looking for the countries that have visa free (no visa requirements), visa on arrival, and eVisa policy for Philippine passport holders.

Visa Free entry countries – these are the list of countries that allow Philippine passport holders to enter their border without the need for Visa and stay there for a period of time.

Visa on arrival countries – These are the countries that will require Filipinos a visa before they will be allowed to enter their borders. The visa can be acquired at the airport, seaport, or point of entry of the said country. There is a fee for this particular type of visa and it will be issued by an immigration officer. There is no need for prior visa application.

Electronic Visa (eVisa) – these type of visa needs to be applied online (usually at the embassy website of respective countries). There is no label or stamp that will be attached to your passport. Your visa is linked to your passport number which can be accessed by airline company prior to departure and immigration officer upon arrival to your destination country.

The visa policy may change without notice so it would be better that you check the respective embassy websites of the country you plan to visit for the updates regarding this matter.
